Title: Control area group report on NRA project to update control area population and acorn profiles
Author: National Rivers Authority Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
In 1994 Mid Kent, Folkestone and South East Water Companies undertook surveys for the Control Areas within their own company areas to update population and household estimates. These surveys highlighted the major changes that have taken place since 1986 and the urgent need to update these figures for all the Control Areas. This report describes the work carried out by the NRA to update population and ACORN estimates on a consistent basis using census data and information provided by CACI. The results of the NRA work show major differences from the estimates made for the original study in 1986 and indeed the surveys carried out by the water companies in 1994. The results therefore cannot be taken as being conclusive and further work needs to be undertaken. This work has also highlighted the need to regularly update the background Control Area information, probably every 2 to 3 years. A key element o f any further work must therefore be repeatability.
